Well it's all in the name. Are you Nottingham hen girls ready to take up the wacky challenges ahead... of course you are if you can manage to stop giggling for long enough.
Up to 3 hours of Goofy Games
6 Crazy Challenges
All safety kit and equipment
Food and drink can be purchased at the site
8 Minimum Guests
Set in one of our wooded glades we have a range of themed challenges to keep all ages, fitness levels and group sizes entertained for 3 hours.
Nottingham Goofy Games emphasis is definitely on the fun side, and there's a very good chance of you getting wet, so a change of clothing and footwear may be advisable.
In teams of 6 or more you will take on the challenges below in a bid to become Lords or Ladies of Sherwood Forest.
Games include: FRIAR TUCK'S WHEEL - As a team you must navigate around the course pushing this huge wheel that has come off Friar Tuck's kart. It sounds easy, but along the way you have to pick up and carry items that have fallen off Tuck's kart some of the items are food some are wine all of them larger than life. JOUST MAD - Every Knight was dependent on his trusty steed and this challenge is no different. Using our purpose built inflatable Steeds your team of knights will race head to head around the Jousting Square. TRENT DUEL - If you know your Robin Hood history you will remember the first time Robin Hood meets Little John, but if you don't no matter as this challenge is all about re-enacting this historical 1st meeting. With your head gear and upper body protection in place you will get an opportunity to take on all comers on our purpose built River Trent crossing. The objective is simple using this huge padded staff you have to knock your opponent into the river (padded crash mats) each contest will be the best of 3 with bragging rights going to the outright winner. STORM THE RAMPARTS - In medieval times they all hated the tax man and today it's no different, well this challenge is your chance to get your own back. At one end of a wooded glade stands Nottingham castle (well a replica anyway) and atop the battlements stands some of the Sheriff's men. All you have to do is knock the Sheriff's men over in the quickest time using our SOLO giant water balloon. WITCHES TEST - In the time of lord and ladies there were also witches and wizards, the traditional way of establishing whether you had a witch in your mist was by strapping them to a chair, submerging (Dunking) them under water and if they survived under water they were a witch if they died they were not !!! You have got to love the logic of our forefathers.
Due to health and safety we can't re-enact this ancient form of justice, but trust us when we tell you there is every likelihood that if you draw the short straw you will end up just as wet. BEGGARS BELIEF - After avoiding the witches challenge and having paid all your hard earned money in taxes to the Sheriffs you have nothing left to feed yourself, so for this challenge you take on the role of a beggar. You will be issued with your beggars sack and a beggars bowl. The challenge is that it's a 5 man sack with a team mate in each corner and the beggar in the middle you must hop in unison around the course collecting broth contributions from your 6th team mate. Once the beggar's bowel is full you have to get the contents back to the main broth pot before setting off to collect more. The team that collects the most broth, in the broth pot in the allotted time, will be hailed the best beggars in town.
The event can be run for teams of 6 or more so groups of 12 + will form multiple teams with the event capable of accommodating 7 teams at any 1 session.
We ask guests to remember is to pack a camera, sense of humour and a smile and let us take care of the rest.
Please note that no alcohol is permitted on site.
Minimum age is 17 years with all drivers having to hold a current full driving licence
The sessions run for 3 hours with a choice of AM being 10 am - 1 pm or PM starting at 1 pm - 4 pm with at least 2 hours of this time dedicated to actually doing the challenges, during the 2 hours teams will take on at least 6 of the challenges.

Freedom were absolutely amazing. I was organising my best friends hen party and they literally did most of the work in arranging the activity and liaising with the company. We had so much fun doing “Goofy inflatable games” the bride to be absolutely loved it!
The booking process was so easy, there were 11 of us and it helped me keep track of who had paid and I had reminders leading up to the event.
I will definitely be recommending Freedom and will be using you again for future events :)

This is the second time I myself have booked through you guys one for my sisters hen and one weekend just gone for my best friend.
Both times have been absolutely fantastic and if I could give 100 star rating I would.
The activities organised through yourselves were so brilliant and I would also like to mention the communication through myself and the sales team was spot on and couldn’t have been more helpful through telephone and email.
I would 100percent recommend to ANYONE to book through your company.

Amazing hen weekend in Cardiff
Had the best time, hotel staff were very friendly & willing to help with any issues food was lovely too and only 5min walk to centre of town. Welsh games had us all in stitches very friendly bunch, would go back. We also did paintball which was just as much fun lots of banter. Taxi was not to badly priced either. We started playing the pub quiz game but signal was not too great and the questions wouldn't come through so gave up on it. We will soon be planning another trip back to Cardiff

Hilarious Goofy Games!
We had so much fun for my friends hen do with the goofy games. We have not laughed like that for a long time! We had the perfect weather too but I think it still would have been fun in the mud. The games were planned well, it was a shame to finish after 2 hours although we were all pretty exhausted! The guy who ran it was really good fun.

Made the process easy from the beginning. Found a brilliant alternative activity when the one I had originally choose was not available! Great value for money would definitely use again!
